We stopped at the Kirkwood after a long day spent at the Clinic in Rochester. Front desk staff is professional and welcoming. Room was upgraded to include breakfast for two in the restaurant. Room included king bed and large couch/sitting area. The black out curtains were very welcome given the expansive windows in the room. Bathroom offered shower stall only.... More

From the time I set foot into the lobby, every need was taken care of immediately. A stunning property from the front door to the hotel suite. Could not have asked for more! The food was amazing, unique cocktails were served at the bar, and the room had everything one could ask for and more.

whenever I can get a chance, I make sure to stay here. Exceptional service! The restaurant offers a new menu, drinks are great, if you need a ride to the airport or to a concert in town - they are there to provide wonderful service. Don't miss this gem in CR!

I enjoyed my two day stay at the Kirkwood Hotel in Cedar Rapids. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. The hotel rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. The bed is firm and I slept great. The black and silver drapes keep the light out from the windows. The bathroom and especially the showers are very impressive. The Class Act... More

I went to college for Hospitality Management, and if I would have worked in a hotel like this in college, I would have probably stayed in the industry! Their service and décor are amazing! I would recommend this to anyone who is in the Cedar Rapids area!

The Hotel at Kirkwood certainly is the "Hidden Gem" of Iowa! My wife and I did the Balletto wine tasting and 5 course gourmet meal with an overnight stay. All we can say is WOW!

Fantastic hotel tied to the community college and part of the hospitality program. The students who work there are amazing. All the regular staff were super friendly, the food was excellent and there was ample parking. The room was perfect, super clean and well-cared for. It is on the edge of town, so be prepared to drive to where you... More

PRO- Very clean, new and modern. Beautifully decorated. Rooms are spacious. Friendly accommodating staff with very nice restaurant. Without a doubt, the top hotel in the area CON- No refrigerator in rooms, no pool, awful picture on TV (not the television but the provider), in a rural area so not very close to restaurants or stores. Overall still an excellent... More
